Managing Your Social Content and Key Marketing Dates Calendar

Managing Your Social Content and Key Marketing Dates Calendar

Do you often find yourself looking for social content ideas, getting to each day, and realising you have no content? Not being prepared is not only time-consuming but also unnecessary hard work!

Firstly, if you’ve not even begun your social media journey and want to know the benefits of using it, check out our blog here.

The first step to efficient posting and healthy social channels is a content schedule. Planning out all your content in advance means consistency, quality content, and variety.

We’ve also included some key marketing dates you can plan into your schedule for the rest of 2024 and pop into your marketing plan!

Planning Content Tips

Firstly, if you are posting regularly, start with a content schedule and create a calendar for the days you are going to post and what the content will be. Then, move on to the planning:

  1. Pick a topic for the week – Having a theme for your content each week makes it easier to come up with ideas.
  2. Imagery –  Images grab your audience’s attention in a second. Using a design team to produce these highlights quality to your audience – we can help with this!
  3. Reuse content – Recycling images and copy you have previously used on social media isn’t a bad thing! If the content is useful and hasn’t been seen by the majority of your audience, then chances are it will benefit them now.
  4. Testing – Don’t be afraid to try different styles and variations of content. What you think is not engaging might be! This lets you figure out in advance what type of content your audience likes.
  5. People – Show your face, your team and the behind-the-scenes of your business – people love people.
